Stockholm is gearing up for the biggest annual event of the year – Stockholm Pride – and preparations are well under way. One of the most popular happenings in the festival programme is the traditional Schlager evening that always takes place Thursday night during Pride week. Schlager is a beloved music style that Swede’s keep close to their hearts since ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 in Brighton with Waterloo. Even though Sweden hasn’t had much success in the competition in the last couple of years, it still generates a huge buzz each year and the songs become classics over night.
In order for you to properly prepare for the Schlager evening we have selected three typical schlager songs that, inspite of being a few years old, still fill dance floors. We all know the lyrics and can probably also do the dance movements.
Study them so you can dance with us all during Stockholm Pride!
